Lohan's Father Makes Frantic Call Public

Rice also weighed in on the phone conversation between Lindsay Lohan and her father, Michael Lohan, which he made public. The call happened during a fight the younger Lohan had with her mother at her house in North Merrick on Wednesday.

"It's just very sad when you hear the content. (He sold it to TMZ) that's even worse. Police have taken no action, so my office is not doing anything. This is a family problem. Unfortunately with their fame and the public's desire for information, this is what happens," said Rice.

Bieber Tapes Anti-Bullying Video to Settle Mall Incident

Lastly, Rice discussed the significance of the county's new Public Service Announcement about bullying involving singing sensation Justin Bieber.

"My hope is that this affects kids across the world. When Justin Bieber looks in the camera and says there  is a place for you to go to get help, that's incredible powerful. We built a website to go along with the PSA," said Rice. StopBullyingLI.org
